Sail Damage location report form
If you are sending in your sail for repair, please download and fill out our damage location report form. instructions such as "the damage is obvious" will not be acted upon, we need detailed instructions of what you want us to repair.

Transit costs for sails If you have difficulty in getting your sail to us, we can arrange for our appointed carriers to collect your correctly packed sail and deliver it to us for repair and then re-deliver it back to you once repaired. At the moment our carriers charge £55 for this service if your packed sail is less than 150cm in length and a total packet weight of less than 15kg. (note: this service is only available to UK mainland addresses)  The carriers will not accept consignments that excede these dimensions. (freight charges vary from week to week, for an accurate freight charge, please supply full dimensions of the paced sail)
If you can drop off your sail and need us to send it back to you, the freight charge will then be just £30 for the return journey. 
NOTE:- Smaller sails that fold into a bag of say 60 cm x 50 cm, (e.g. Laser radial) the freight charges will be about £40 to collect and £20 to return

IMPORTANT INSURANCE and Packing your sail/s advice
When we contact you with a firm price, if you decide to go ahead, just confirm everything is OK by replying to our email.
Express Sail Repairs The Blue Chip Express Repair Service means just that. Once we have the sail we can complete the repair within 24 hours, often less, depending on the work involved. If you have a problem getting your sail to us, we can arrange an insured overnight service from you to us and back to you.
If you require the Express repair service you must specify this at the outset as we will need to build this into our schedule and cost appraisal.
Board and sail storage charges for repaired equipment left beyond the QRCD (quoted repair completion date)

Due to the amount of work we are now asked to undertake by private customers, insurance companies and trade work for other shops, together with a lack of storage space within our workshop, we cannot accommodate storage of finished boards and sails in our workshops for more than 10 days after the QRCD. However we now operate a secure post storage service.
